Default PDGA Updates Gender Policy

https://www.pdga.com/announcements/p...cted-divisions
Quote:
The PDGA is implementing a new policy on eligibility for gender-protected divisions (that is, female divisions). The PDGA Policy on Eligibility for Gender-Protected Divisions was developed by the PDGA Medical Committee with input from Laura Nagtegaal and was approved by the PDGA Board of Directors on 12 March 2019.

Previously, the PDGA recognized the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Medical Commission’s 2003 Statement of the Stockholm consensus on sex reassignment in sports in determining eligibility for gender-protected divisions. The IOC has since revised its policy with the Consensus Meeting on Sex Reassignment and Hyperandrogenism (November 2015) and the new PDGA policy is in alignment with this latest IOC standard.

Any player competing in PDGA events in a gender-protected division (any division containing “F,” e.g. FA1 or FP60) must conform to the requirements of the PDGA Policy on Eligibility for Gender-Protected Divisions. Players wishing to compete in female-only divisions must be declared female at birth or meet the requirements to be recognized as a transgender female, details of which are contained in the policy. The policy also addresses players who wish to reclassify from female to male.

Any player wishing to change their gender in the PDGA database must complete the Gender Reclassification Form and send it, along with required documentation, to medical@pdga.com. Any player with specific queries pertaining to their gender classification may contact the PDGA Medical Committee through this email address. All personal information communicated in this regard is covered through the PDGA Privacy Policy.

Yeah the Olympics had to update its policy/rules after a 800 meter incident where a Transgender Female that was not fully transitioned won the 800 meter I think they were from India or Pakistan and a person who had breast reduction surgery from either Africa or one of the tropical islands in the Gulf Of Mexico came in second or third. This was at the 2012 Olympics where it happened.

Even after male to female sex reassignment, old muscle does not simply disappear. Transitioned males still have a great physical advantage.

Female PDGA members should demand that transitioned males not be allowed in the gender protected bracket.

Another reason not to join the PDGA.

This is incorrect, and there's tons of studies and evidence showing that post-transition women do not have their prior muscle mass or strength. Further, transgender women frequently have a harder time building strength compared to cis women, as their blood testosterone levels are usually lower than cis women's, as women still have the small output from their ovaries, which transgender women lack.

Transgender women aren't male. They're female, or women. It's disrespectful to say otherwise.

You should learn more about the subject before you tell other people what to do.

Oh, you're a crank. Never mind.

Disc golf, like striking, is fast twitch muscle dominate.

Y chromosome = male.

Man, those armies of doctors and scientists around the world who have been studying this for decades and compiling data and publishing reports have been spinning their wheels in vain. All they had to do was listen to JOE ROGAN.

Weak sauce. Don't come at me with that.

If you have a penis...you are man. If you have a vagina... you are woman. If you are offended I call you "what you were born". Sounds like "you" have issues.

Sexual dimorphism is science. Male to female transgender people are not biologically women. Sports is essentially a competition of superior biology so trans-women and biological women are not equal competitors. There is no point of a gender protected division under the PDGA's current interpretation.

Combat is where B.S. ends. I trained many years in martial arts. Women's bone structure and the amount of fast twitch muscles are not the same as males. VO2 max is also lower, due to factors beyond what gender reassignment will change; although that is not as important in DG.

One of the instructors I trained under was a highly skilled female. I had great respect for her, she taught me a lot. I trained with other women throughout the years, both in traditional martial arts and self defense based one's. One of the things one will learn is the differences in how men and women are built. It takes more than genital reassignment and hormone therapy to change that.

As I stated earlier, combat is where the truth shines and is why I am focusing on it. There are other sports where the empirical evidence is being shown should you wish to look.
